Abstract:

This paper examines the evolution of the population density in Spain over the twentieth century. Using a homogeneous database of the population at a municipal level – elaborated from the eleven censuses carried out between 1900 and 2001 – the paper looks at the general characteristics of population concentration from various perspectives. Focusing on population density, we present empirical evidence supporting the hypothesis that, over time, Spain's population has undergone progressive concentration, and that this process is still under way. Its main contribution is to offer quantitative support for phenomena which have already been well documented by specialists in more general terms.

Spanish
Este artículo versa sobre la evolución de la densidad de población en España durante el siglo XX. A partir de una base de datos de población a escala municipal homogénea– elaborada con los once censos efectuados entre 1900 y 2001 – los autores examinan, bajo distintos puntos de vista, las características generales de la concentración de la población. Los resultados corroboran la hipótesis de una concentración progresiva de la población con el transcurso del tiempo, proceso que prosigue todavía hoy. La aportación esencial del artículo es que confirma, por medio de un análisis cuantitativo detallado, fenómenos que los especialistas ya han descrito en términos más generales.

Cet article traite de l'évolution de la densité de la population en Espagne au cours du XXe siècle. Exploitant une base de données démographiques homogène à l'échelle des municipalités – construite à partir des onze recensements effectués entre 1900 et 2001 – les auteurs examinent, sous divers points de vue, les caractéristiques générales de la concentration de la population. Les résultats corroborent l'hypothèse d'une concentration progressive de la population de l'Espagne au fil du temps, processus qui se poursuit encore aujourd'hui. L'apport essentiel de l'article est qu'il confirme par une analyse quantitative des phénomènes que les spécialistes ont déjà bien décrits en des termes plus généraux.
